Walltime cannot be increased

Hello!

I am trying to change the walltime in my jobs to be something other than 6 hours.

This appears to be impossible.

 

I tried the methods given in the FAQs such as:

echo python main.py -l walltime=24:00:00 | qsub

#PBS -l walltime=24:00:00

 

While the job is running I tried:

qalter jobid -l walltime=24:00:00

and got this output:

qalter: Unauthorized Request jobid

 

Thanks,

Hagai

Hi,

Thanks for reaching out to us.

qalter command is used to alter requested resources for a currently queued (and not running) job.

To extend the default limit to 24 hrs, use "#PBS -l walltime=24:00:00" in your job file.

Please follow the below steps:

1. Create a job file

vi job

2. Inside the file please add

#PBS -l walltime=24:00:00
python <sample.py>

3. Save the file

Press [Esc] to shift to the command mode and press :wq! and hit [Enter] to save the file.

4.Run the job

qsub job

 

Hope this helps. If you face any issues please let us know.

Thanks
